    Most old folks are not quick enough to execute this shot.

    Thanks for another excellent vid!
    Are you hitting that step back topspin shot w a continental grip? And as a follow up, do you use a continental grip for your non slice forehand serve returns? If so, I recall from tennis that it is hard to generate topspin w a continental grip; maybe it’s different with a Pickleball?

    Often lower level players will take there right handed third from their partner on the other side of the center line. As they come forward it is often going strait. This leaves the outside shot, pass their backhand open. To set the play up serve about two feet from the center even side and watch the returners approach from there. If the odd side player comes over to take the ball and comes strait foreword, look for the passing shot to his outside.

    Great video.

  8. Stephen Johnson on December 6, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    great job thanks my friend

  9. Jim Kazmarek on December 6, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Players that don’t split step or just keep coming forward get hit by the ball. Hands are down and can’t defend a drive!
    Thanks again for the information.

    In terms of keeping youl eye at the opponent: I do not see how that is possible. When I am hitting a ball I am focused only on seeing the ball, and yet I can usually see my opponents in my peripheral vision. I now believe that pickleball should be played on an unconcious level. The only things I am concentrating on is seeing the ball and the angle of my opponents paddle. And yet I still have a wide range of peripheral vision. All skeet shooters know this. Thoughts, Jordon? To take this thought further, when I hit a 3rd shot drop I don’t look at my target as I am hitting. I visualize the target in my mind. (I actually look at my drop target before I serve; that helps me later visualize it in my mind.) In fact, if I prematurely lift my head to see where my drop is going my drop will probably go high.

    Great training videos! I would love to see video series demonstrating the difference in what is defined as 2 to 5 skill levels. Demonstrate difference between 3.5 and 4.0 for example. Show skill shots that a 4.5 player can make vs a 3.5. Just a thought Thanks.

  12. SchreinersFamily on December 6, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Great. video as always. Another shot to put in my arsenal. Keep up the great job

  13. Jeff Shaffer on December 6, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Would would you recommend as a defense if your opponent did this to you?

  14. Pj Pj on December 6, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    If they are up to the kitchen would you still use this shot? Or if they are still coming in? I would also guess that it depends on how high their third shot drop bounces…..if its low might be tough even with topspin

  15. Jake Harris on December 6, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    That ice cream truck intro πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ€£

  16. Lori Hennigh on December 6, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    This video is very clear. Nice!

  17. Softsoap on December 6, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Hi Jordan, suggestion you include a link to purchase the paddle you use… looks like Encore MX 6.0, is it the LITE version?

  18. Joe Nenninger on December 6, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Always fun to watch the games going on in the background (after viewing tip 2 or 3 times of course)….senior singles this time.

  19. C. Brandon Chapman on December 6, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    I see someone else that spins their paddle as much as I do πŸ˜‚.

  20. Pickleball Hui on December 6, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    To take this one shot more, if you hit a 3rd shot drop and you see your opponent step back to hit a roll, how should you react? Should you come forward quickly and stop to split step as they make contact: come forward carefully to about mid-court range, or stay back? Let’s assume your opponent has a good step back roll

  21. Chase Evans on December 6, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Great video, as I rarely use this shot. I’m gonna experiment more with this shot since it makes so much more sense in terms of hitting the ball at a higher contact zone. The only thing I don’t like is I feel that repositioning into a semi or closed stance while at the kitchen with my backswing in a groundstroke formation signals to my opponent I will most likely drive it. But since keeping my opponent back is usually the solid play, this technique will allow me to drive 3rd shot drops I would normally dink

  22. Richard Derfler on December 6, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    The problem I see is the better players have momentum when they do a 3rd shot drop and are actually at nvz line before the 4th shot. A novice or new player yes definitely makes sense.

  23. neothaka on December 6, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    So the first 4 shots are de facto set in stone? Isn’t that rather dull?

  24. Paul McDevitt on December 6, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Love this idea. Very well explained. Will definitely be trying this out

  25. Murray Young on December 6, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Video would be more complete it if included suggestion on what to do when your opponent used the ‘little used shot’ against you.
